We all know that digital media can store and convey sound one-to-one. Vinyl records cannot do this because a whole range of technical limitations cause changes to occur in the recorded and reproduced sound. Surprisingly, it is precisely these technical shortcomings that contribute to the harmonious sound quality of the vinyl disc. However, taking successful advantage of this phenomenon means walking a fine line. To walk this tightrope safely, we prepare dedicated vinyl masters for disc cutting.
The legendary sound of vinyl records
The sound of vinyl is an aesthetic that we have collectively learned to love over the decades. It is a world of sound that is quite different to that of live music. And we have associated it with recorded music since time immemorial. This is appreciated to such an extent that digital audio processing, which comes closer to the way music actually sounds, is perceived by many as being lifeless. Forty years of digital audio and compact dis0cs have failed to surpass the legendary and almost archetypal sound of vinyl.
